Depression Poem

Feeling Worthless

Stay at home mother of 2 toddlers, living 1700 miles from friends and family has led to feelings of guilt, depression, and inadequacy. Writing is my only outlet.

I Hide

©

Published: May 2017

Due to my twisted sense of pride
Having no one in which to confide
Taught to never show the tears I've cried
Many times wishing I had died
No one knows just how hard I've tried
To not show what's truly inside
So I hide
I hide behind a mask and a smile
Faking it all the while
Never showing the true trial
Constantly in a state of denial
Feelings of worthlessness, nothing worthwhile
When did things become so hostile
So I hide
I hide behind a guise and grin
Rarely acting on a whim
Afraid of what could've been
Letting too much get under my skin
Patience continuously worn thin
Keeping everything within
So I hide

It kinda relates to me...being hidden your whole life and pretending does seem hard...
